Reston, VA (PressExposure) June 29, 2009 -- ZoomSafer, an innovative provider of mobile software and services to prevent distracted driving, has partnered with Five Mobile of Toronto, Canada to develop custom software for multiple smart-phone platforms as well as a web-based user registration and management portal.
"Five Mobile is the perfect software development partner to help us prevent distracted driving," says Michael Riemer, Co-Founder and CEO of ZoomSafer. "Not only do they have deep experience across a full range of smart-phone platforms, but they have a deeply practical approach to building applications that people will actually use in the real world."
Based on the ZoomSafer patented design, the development effort will uniquely integrate multiple technologies including location services, call management, voice services, and social media in the context of a users driving experience.
"ZoomSafer is an incredibly compelling and timely application. The need is obvious to anyone and everyone who has a phone and drives a car. We're looking forward to partnering with ZoomSafer in support of this important and ground breaking effort," says Ameet Shah, Co-Founder, Five Mobile Inc.
Distracted driving is an increasingly dangerous epidemic with current studies showing that texting while driving is more dangerous than drunk driving. In response to these disturbing trends US and Canadian legislators are moving quickly to pass new safe driving laws.
"Although legislation is an important component of any solution, laws alone are not the answer," added Mr. Riemer. "At ZoomSafer we're dedicated to preventing distracted driving by delivering solutions that people will use, not because they have to, but because they want to."
